clinton had to say. bill clinton hit a home run, michelle obama hit a home run. now it's barack obama to carry it forward. he can't get by with a ground ruled double tonight. he these hit a home run. i mean, they've set a bar that is that high. i mean, there have been two exceptional nights, michelle obama and bill clinton. and while david and i were quite admiring of governor christie in tampa, there was nobody at the republican event that established anything to the same standard, i think, that barack obama needs to do. >> ifill: the republican campaign officials told me that the first night with michelle obama was supposed to be about heart and values and the second night was the prosecution and what's tonight supposed to be about with the president? >> i hope it's about the future. it better be. as you say, we know about what's in him, we saw the argument against the republicans, i went back and read the speech this morning and when i was looking for what the future was going to be, there was nothing. there was one sentence. so that better be what this is about. a candidate for of
, michelle obama and others set the stage. tonight president obama prepares to make his case for reelection. >>> exactly two months ago 'til election day and the stakes could not be higher. the economy, immigration, health care and war. with most polls suggesting this race is a dead heat, the president just hours away from making his pitch to all of us. plus democratic damage control? >> it was not intentional. absolutely not. sometimes there are technical corrections. >> shep: party leaders say putting god and jerusalem in their platform is in the past. >> all those delegates in favor eye aye. >> aye. >> all those opposed say no. >> no. >> shep: nobody will say who took it out in the first place. now republicans are weighing in. >> if you've ever seen a demonstration of an obama-led incompetency, it was on that floor yesterday. >> shep: tonight political distractions on the president's big night. but first now, three hours away from president obama's acceptance speech. four years ago, he became the first democrat to win north carolina in more than 30 years. tonight he'll be on the road to
, and i'm sure will, tomorrow, will be saying, man, they have michelle obama, bill clinton, and president obama. i wish we had a murderer's row like that on our side. >> i have to wrap this up. a bit of breaking news we have to pass on to people. thank you, roland and will. as usual. >> you bet. >>> this is cnn breaking newses. >>> ok. now for the breaking news. a u.s. airways flight returns to the airport following a threat. our affiliate wpvi is reporting u.s. airways flight 1267 had already left philadelphia on its way to dallas when a threat was called in involving a passenger carrying an explosive liquid. it happened just after 7:00 eastern this morning. the plane is back on the ground. the plane will now be searched. of course we're going to monitor the situation. if they find anything or even if they don't, of course we'll pass it along to you. but for now, those passengers are pretty much stuck. we'll be right back. >>> 13 minutes past the hour. to money news this morning, one of the keywords used in both political conventions, jobs. this morning, the labor department says 365,000
with michelle obama on tuesday night, the strongest possible turn, the personal case for reelecting the president and president bill clinton last night that laid out the policy. being blessed by having a very engaged emotional audience there in charlotte and lay out his vision for the economy which is one that really builds the middle class out, and says the wealthiest among us, help to pay a little bit more. >> they were very enthusiastic audience, no doubt about it. but you would think they would vote for the president. how does the president make his argument to them tonight, what does he say other than we would have been off th a cliff, or i saved them from a depression. we can get worked up about the markets today or the jobs report, but 8% plus unemployment is not great out there. >> the reports today on the report we are probably expecting tomorrow has the potential to really be in exclamation point at the top. one thing they have done is use the very popular circuit like president bill clinton something like 70% approval rating across parties and have them emphasize these me
fighters. weather moved tonight indoors. but after a first night owned by michelle obama, after a second night owned by president clinton, expectations for the finale are sky high. msnbc's primetime coverage of the democratic national convention's final night begins right now. >>> thank you for joining us. i'm rachel maddow here at msnbc headquarters in new york. i'm joined by ed shultz, melissa harris-perry, chris hayes, and the senior strategist steve schmidt. lawrence o'donnell and al sharpton will be joining us in a moment. leading us from the site of the convention is our colleague and friend chris matthews. you said on opening night this week that democrats were having more fun than republicans. but that didn't necessarily mean that they were winning. the democrats have been ecstatic at previous conventions where they had gone on to lose. so how do you rate the democrats' happiness and their prospects? >> wow. you're hitting me with the toughest questions. there's two months left with a lot of economic news to come. we've got the unemployment rate coming out tomorrow morning. two m
job speaking to. he comes into this speech with a 69% approval rating. michelle obama the night before has high approval ratings. it's a powerful one-two punch, two of the only national politicians that have ratings like that. most politicians just don't get that high anymore. >> a former republican consult and who made ads for none other than mitt romney came on cnn after the speech and said they should shut down the convention right now. that was the speech that may have elected barack obama. that's pretty out there. >> i wonder if alex is getting calls from his republican friends saying, hey, tone it down, alex. >> it is true. you asked the question about who he's trying to reach. i think that there are no question that there are -- i mean, you probably know some personally, people who are 2008 obama supporters who just are disappointed in him. and disappointed in what he has done. and for president clinton to do this and not just give, i think you're right, a lawyerly explanation of why, but also to give it in a wa i thatting loos like he's emoting and he means it, it's hard to --
whether that combined with michelle obama and president obama's speech is going to produce a bump. it's a polarized electorate. bumps aren't easy. democrats are happy with last night. >> john, very early on in clinton's speech he really tried to own the obama line about you didn't build it. i thought that was actually somewhat surprising really trying to suggest that actually maybe that line he actually meant the first time around. >> well, democrats do mean it in the sense that not in the way in which republicans have been using it against the president, but they do believe -- i mean, it's the whole theory behind hillary clinton's book "it takes the village." we all remember that. it's the idea that collective action is a big part of our individual success, which is something that when we look at, say, a country like iraq where we've been at war, the emphasis on the rebuilding process is on creating institutions and civil society and rule of law and all the things that allow individual enterprise to prosper. that's the point the democrats were making and they're trying to drive that
, this was not really at all front and center, but there was a lot of focus on the successes of michelle obama's address and bill clinton making the case, the mess of the economy that president barack obama inherited and there's president obama tonight looking over the horizon and telling us where we're going to go. this is a passing event for discussions on programs like yours, but doesn't indicate where the party is. stuart: it's out there, sir. really is. congressman peter welsh, democrat, we always appreciate when you appear with us, thank you. >> thank you. stuart: another big movie higher this morning, all right, nicole. >> sears was a great performer as of late. it was boosted out of the the s&p 500, guess who is buying up shares? eddie lambert the last 24 hours in a filing, 2.4 million shares he purchased. do you know how much that's worth? 126 million dollars. so when we heard zuckerberg was not selling facebook, the stock popped. when you see lampert buying shares, the stock popped. when you see the manager buying shares, i feel confidence in the company, you should, too. stuart: i don't want
michelle obama, the chair is the most influential woman that the white house is listen listening to and "the new york times" article calls her the other power. good to see you valerie. >> well, it is so good to see you on the third and the final day of of the convention. >> at love oenthusiasm and it has been hectic. tell us about the prep ratiaratf the president's speech? >> well, he has an opportunity to speak honestly and directly to the american people about what he has been accomplishing over the last four years and the road map for the future and it will crystallize the sharp comparison of his plans in comparison to governor romney's. as president clinton said to eloquent eloquently last night, governor romney wants to double-down on trickle-down and we know it does not work. the president believes in growing a strong and robust middle-class, and providing the ladders of opportunity for those not yet in the middle-class and want to work hard and have that american dream, and so he will contrast those two very differedi different visions and lay out how to get us there. >> w
, michelle obama the first night, president clinton last night and president obama tonight. i think we've got a trifecta. >> yeah. there's been some powerful speeches. it's been said that clinton in 20 seconds made the best sell for the president, better than the white house has been able to make in four years, what do you make of that? >> there's only one bill clinton. did a great job last night. i think he really summed it up is that under democrats america gets jobs. under the republicans we don't do so well, and i think our president tonight will continue the effort to make sure that americans know the facts, and heard a lot of fibs last week at the republican convention and it's time to straighten out the record. >> still though, some read it as bit of a liability, that the white house or the president himself can't make that case. in the end, politics are a singles game, not a doubles game. how much pressure son him to sell himself tonight? >> well, i'm a white sox fan, and so is president obama, and we're in first place. we're going to stay in first place, and i think president obama c
profiles i have seen over michele obama. this is a slow rising tide. david gregory didn't get the job just because he was a white male. he is someone who had been a white house correspondent for nbc. he had the skills that were necessary to be a good broadcaster and a good interviewer. the time will come when those jobs will be again available, and there will be a much wider range of people who will be eligible for them. one of them could very well be an african-american. it may be an asian american. i'm not sure. it may be a hispanic american. we are seeing more presents of people with different ethnic backgrounds than just white, anglo and protestant. bryant gumbel succeeded me on "the today show" as the african-american host of "the today show", for example. >> host: for scrotal organ, please go ahead with your question or comment. >> caller: i come from a different journalist background than you, but i feel equally crucial to americans and how they should know what is going on in their world. i was a reporter and an editor at a small, medium-sized weeklies in dailies over the nation fo
others of us wouldn't make with other people's lives. >> would you want to hear from president obama tonight in his except in speech? >> he has to follow michele and bill clinton and he has a tough time but i know he is a bright guy and has been thinking about that. what i would like to hear is more about what is he going to do in the next four years to help us get our momentum back particularly given head winds from outside the u.s.. a lot of americans don't realize every time we get a leg up the euro zone falls into crisis and we have a tsunami and china slows down and the question is is there anything of a president can tell us that will give us more confidence that we are going to continue to improve and increase that case. >> you are a registered democrat or republican? independent? >> i am an independent. lisa rakowski is one of my politicians. i like the people in the middle. that is where i sit and where most americans searched. >> thanks for joining us. dave: always the swing vote. liz: quoting a person, not a party. dave: interesting data car guy would be for the president.
